Carole Kohler

Carole is a Swiss abstract painter in mixed media; as well as a sculptress in limestone, olive wood, aluminum and steel. She also works on augmented reality projects including videos being virtually projected on the surface of Carole’s paintings, using the cell phone of the spectator and a special app.

Carole was artistically educated at the School of Design in Biel/Bienne (Switzerland), before becoming a decorator. She started her career as an artist in the early 90s, beginning with photorealistic charcoal portraits of indigenous people she met while travelling the world. Later on, while working on animal projects in Africa and Asia, she started creating realistic animal paintings which ignited her artistic career in Switzerland. During the same period, she became a mahout in Thailand which enabled her to ride and work with Asian elephants. While walking with camels through the Sahara Desert (an awareness-expanding journey), she left the figurative path and began painting in abstract. This allowed her to express more of what she feels through her inner journey, using acrylics, pigments and plant fibres collected from all over the world. In 2015, Carole won the Swiss based art prize “Prix de la Sarrazine”, which offered her an artist residency for 8 months in beautiful Provence, France. She gradually began having exhibitions outside of Switzerland, which is cresting in 2018 with a heavy exhibition schedule. Now she is focused on global recognition and making big steps in the worldwide art scene. This has included exhibitions in Paris (twice); Brussels (twice); New York (twice); Hong Kong (once); Miami (upcoming); as well as presentations in Switzerland (Langenthal, Attisiwil and upcoming in Cham.) She shows her works in both single and group exhibitions, as well as during art fairs. In 2018, Carole won 2nd prize for the international art competition “Parco Artistico Leonardo” (based in Quarrata, Italy). In 2017, she was featured in Art & Design Magazine (based in Paris, France); and in 2018 in ACS Magazine (an online publication based in Chicago, USA).
